Explore the Passover and its significance to the Christian faith through three downloadable Bible studies.
Church Bulletin Inserts
Help your congregation expand its understanding of the significance of Passover, the Seder meal, and the Exodus through these downloadable church bulletin inserts.
Multimedia Teaching Resources
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein is featured on two teaching video clips that can be used with the Bible study materials, as part of a sermon illustration, or as a stand-alone resource for adult education. We also offer you a look at a model Seder meal that was conducted to help 200 Ethiopian immigrants to Israel prepare for their first Passover. A PowerPoint presentation on the "Second Exodus" is also included.
Children's Resources — NEW!
Help your children, ages 7 to 11, better understand the significance of the Exodus through our downloadable educational materials featuring a retelling of the story and questions to guide your teaching experience. We also offer you a guide to conducting a child-friendly Seder meal right in your classroom. Also included are several activity pages for children about Passover and the Seder and a PowerPoint presentation for use in the classroom, children's church, or a midweek program.
How You Can Help
The Fellowship has a number of ways for congregations, Sunday school classes, or individuals to participate in helping those in need celebrate Passover.
Welcome to the Passover Experience
On behalf of the Fellowship, welcome to the Pastors' Library featuring several powerful additions to our Passover Experience educational resources.
It is our hope that through these resources we will help build bridges of understanding about the Jewish roots of Christianity and deepen the spiritual bonds between us.
As the Jewish people prepare to observe Passover and Christians look forward to Easter, it is a perfect time to share these resources about the Passover celebration with your congregation. We have prepared downloadable Bible studies, church bulletin inserts, and video teaching resources, along with a PowerPoint presentation on the "second exodus" of Jews returning home to celebrate Passover.
This year we have added exciting materials for children, including an overview of the Exodus story and how to have a Seder meal in the Sunday school classroom. Along with a series of activity pages relating to Passover, these educational resources are suitable for children, ages 7-11. We also have provided a PowerPoint presentation on the Passover for children.
I think these materials will give you and your congregation an expanded understanding of the Passover celebration and its ties to the Christian faith, as well as deepen your spiritual life as you reflect on how God miraculously works in the lives of His people.
You can use these materials in your church worship service, Bible study group, small group studies, or other adult education setting. I believe you will find these to be especially effective as part of a three-week program leading up to Passover and Easter.
I encourage you to use and share these educational tools as a blessing for all. It is my prayer that they will be an encouragement to you as we celebrate together God's love and care for all of His people.
With prayers for shalom, peace,
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein
